MB #216 – ONLINE NOW

April 3, 2020 by Dan Walsh
Making Connections Believe it or not, the theme of this issue was determined before the coronavirus crisis amped up. When that happened, my first reaction was "Oh no, articles on 'touching' people are not a good idea. Back to the drawing board." But then I realized that most of the content we had in the hopper already could apply just as much to connecting with people in a non-physical way. So, hopefully some of these articles will help you weather the storm of self-isolation that is battering your business, while others will help you prepare for the days after the sky clears and business (maybe not "as usual"--but that might be a good thing) will retu...

Rusty Details Part 2

November 12, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
So how did everything end up after my faux pas the day before at the ceremony?  After the ceremony was over the next day, I was complimented by the Step Father of the bride, by the Father of the Groom, and by the Mother of the Bride after the ceremony about what a wonderful job I did serving as their Officiant.    Here’s the rub.  We’re not always perfect.  No one is. The key thing to note is to take a moment and stop to smell the roses if you will, stop and enjoy life for a minute.  Center yourself around your purpose, your calling and why it is that you do what you do. Some people think our lives are just party-fil... [read more]

Rusty Details Part 1

November 5, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
The devil is in the details...or sometimes the rusty details if you will.  What do I mean by that….rusty details? Have you ever come back into the thick of event season after a short break and sometimes you find yourself slip back into rote?  Doing the same thing that you’ve always done. If you’re honest with yourself...I bet you have. This happened to me recently and I thought I would share the experience with you here.  I got to a rehearsal after a short break from the season last year and I go into rote. What’s rote? Rote, according to Dictionary.com, is the mechanical or habitual repetition of something to be lear... [read more]

How To Convert Price To Meeting Part 4

October 31, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
We finish this series with how I ended my email and the outcome of the event itself.  Finally I gave her our 2 goals that we have for any event we partner with a couple on. After that I said this “If that sounds like what you are looking for then I would recommend a time to have a virtual chat with us and see how we can help you further, or if you want to be sure you don't lose your date feel free to call me and we can work out the rest of the details. Ultimately, brides hire us to take responsibility for the success of their wedding day so they can relax and enjoy it.  It's what we do best...that and provide GREAT memories. ... [read more]

How To Convert Price To Meeting Part 3

October 24, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
We continue to see how the bride responded to my initial reply after the search phase.   “Hi Mitch,Right now the best way to reach me is through email. At this time, I am only looking for DJ services for my reception. Would you be able to supply pricing information for this?” At this point she has asked for pricing twice and wants to pin down to a price, not being satisfied at the range I gave her and asking for a phone call. She specifically said “right now” and “only looking for DJ services” and “pricing information”. Many people would write her off. I didn’t.  In my seminar “ROAR” at MBLV20 I discusse... [read more]

How To Convert Price To Meeting Part 2

October 17, 2019 by Mitch Taylor
How To Convert Price To Meeting Part 2 We continue this week with why you should study of personalities in converting price to meeting.  It’s really important to do this so that you realize there IS a human being on the other end of this communication that is searching for information to see if you are a good fit for her. Many times we get an inquiry like this and we get disgruntled and complain, “all she wants is a price” (which is true at this point). By taking this extra step it helps us soften that initial response to her a bit. Second, just by looking at her email address (@hotmail) I can fairly assume that she is p... [read more]
